During this busy Memorial Day weekend, Sarah was the nurse on duty in the wing of the hospital where I was admitted. Along with her many regular duties, including patient admissions and releases, she found the time to help me with an issue that I was having with my medications.
I had fallen from a ladder and broken both legs. I was in a considerable amount of pain but the medication I was taking was not having the desired effect with respect to pain relief.
Sarah worked on my behalf with hospital staff and the doctor to develop a new medicine regimen to better help with my pain management. The results of the change were nothing short of a miracle. The pain was finally under control and I was able to get a good night’s sleep.
Although Sarah was extremely busy she took the time to give me the individual attention that I needed in the most professional manner, explaining each step along the way and did so with a smile on her face.
Sarah is an asset to this facility and to the many patients that she serves. I would love to recognize her for a job well done.
I came in depressed and embarrassed with an alcohol problem. Sarah took the time to make sure I was okay and always with a smile. Sarah always had words of encouragement and held my hand when I felt my lowest. When she assessed me she always had words of encouragement and I began to feel much better than when I first arrived. She made sure that my comfort level was at its best and I was on a clear diet, she made sure that I had another tray of drinks, so I wouldn’t go to sleep hungry. Nurses are angels on earth, I know because my daughter is one. We need more like her. Sarah is a gem and an extremely important part of the care process with her beautiful outlook on life and acceptance of people and their problems.
